CM: Pioli aiming to integrate De Ketelaere gradually ahead of final two friendlies

By Oliver Fisher -

After welcoming Charles De Ketelaere into the fold over the past few days, Stefano Pioli now has a plan regarding how to integrate him fully into his plans.

Calciomercato.com reports how the expectation is growing for the debut of the 21-year-old attacking midfielder, who arrived from Club Brugge at the end of a long and exhausting transfer saga, and his first minutes should come today.

At 19:00 CEST the Rossoneri will face off against Vicenza and Pioli’s idea is to use the Belgian for the last quarter of an hour so he can get used to the mechanisms but above improve his physical condition, which already appeared good in the first few training sessions at Milanello.

Then, De Ketelaere should play more minutes in tomorrow’s final friendly at Milanello against Pergolettese with the aim of having him near 100% for the first league game of the season on Saturday at 18:30 against Udinese at San Siro.
